And if it is faulty then how all of a sudden the meters of all the subscribers of the town got defective and there is need of changing all the meters of the subscribers. Prayer: 1. The bills should be revised according to the meter reading recorded by the department. 2. Kindly order your staff to check the reading and issue bills according to consumption. 3. This is highhandedness of the Electiricity Department as the meters of all the residents of the town could not be get defective. 4.
